MINNEAPOLIS -- Minnesota Timberwolves forward Dante Cunningham was charged Friday with assault after being accused of choking his girlfriend during an argument. A criminal complaint filed in Hennepin County District Court said his girlfriend told police they got into the argument early Thursday at his suburban Minneapolis home. The woman, who is not named in the complaint, told police he kicked down a locked bedroom door, grabbed her around the neck and slammed her against the wall, choking her for 15 to 20 seconds during which she could not breathe. "Victims eyes were watering and she felt like she was being strangled to death," the complaint alleges. The woman told police he then dropped her, and she called 911. According to the complaint, their relationship began last summer and they had been living together for eight months. Police said Thursday that she did not require medical treatment. Cunningham was charged with one felony count of domestic assault by strangulation. The 26-year-old remained jailed Friday evening with bail set at $40,000. It wasnt clear if he had an attorney. He was unable to join the Timberwolves when they left Thursday on a two-game road trip to Florida. The team issued a statement Thursday saying they were gathering more information. "The Minnesota Timberwolves organization takes the matter very seriously and does not condone the type of behaviour that is associated with this situation," the statement read. "However, we need to let the legal process run its course, and will have further comment at the appropriate time." Danny Shelton Patriots Jersey .

Some members of the U.S. Congress arent so sure. They say Russia isnt doing enough to assure that athletes will be protected at the Feb. 7-23 games, happening not far from an Islamic insurgency that Russias huge security apparatus has struggled for two decades to quell. Russia may run greater risks in towns outside the tightly controlled Olympic zone. Suicide bombs last month a few hundred kilometres (miles) away have increased concerns, and an Islamic warlord has urged his followers to attack the Sochi Olympics, Russian President Vladimir Putins pet project. http://www.authenticpatriotsfanatic.com ... ersey.aspx.

Thats when the eight-time champion revealed that a painful back is slowing his serves -- and, all in all, giving him more trouble than his opponents so far.MIAMI -- Marcell Ozuna was in a slump when the game started. It was forgotten when the night was over. Ozuna doubled home Garrett Jones with the winning run in the 10th inning, and the Miami Marlins topped the Arizona Diamondbacks 5-4 on Thursday night. "This guy is a huge part of our team," Marlins manager Mike Redmond said of Ozuna, who snapped an 0-for-16 skid earlier in the game. "And hes had some big at-bats and hes gotten some big hits for us throughout the year." Ozunas line-drive to left-centre came off Bradin Hagens (0-1), who was making his major league debut. Hagens got a double play to escape the ninth, but Jones reached on a leadoff walk in the 10th and scored two batters later. "I still have to be ready," Hagens said. "It was nice to get in and have a chance to help the team get a win, just unfortunate that it didnt happen." Mike Dunn (10-5) pitched two perfect innings for Miami and became the first reliever to reach double-digits in wins since Matt Belisle for Colorado in 2011, according to STATS. "The team played great tonight, coming back," Dunn said. Mark Trumbo had a pair of RBI singles for Arizona. Diamondbacks starter Chase Anderson allowed nine hits and three runs in six innings, and David Peralta had an RBI triple to highlight a two-run third. Giancarlo Stanton had three hits for Miami, giving him four multi-hit games in his last 10 outings. Brad Penny, pitching at home for the Marlins for the first time in more than 10 years, allowed five hits and four runs in five-plus innings. Miami trailed 3-0 early, then chipped away. Penny and Donovan Solano had doubles in the home half of the third, and Stantons RBI single got Miami within 3-2. Arizona went up 4-2 in the sixth when Trumbo drew a leadoff walk and eventually scored, but then Hechavarria -- who had exactly one multi-RBI game in his last 108 appearances before Thursday -- brought the Marlins back. He had a RBI triple in the sixth too get the Marlins within one, then tied it at 4-4 with two out in the eighth with a single that brought home pinch-runner Jordany Valdespin easily from second.dddddddddddd "Hes improved so much," Redmond said. Pennys most recent home start for the Marlins was July 28, 2004 -- which wasnt even in Miami, but rather about 15 miles north in Miami Gardens, Florida at Sun Life Stadium, the facility where the team played before its Little Havana ballpark was built. TRAINERS ROOM Diamondbacks: 2B Aaron Hill was out of the lineup for the second straight game, with manager Kirk Gibson saying he was "pretty beat up" but not citing any specific injury. LHP Eury De La Rosa and RHP Randall Delgado were not available Thursday in order to get some rest. Marlins: LHP Dan Jennings (concussion) is planning on throwing bullpen sessions the next couple of days and is expected to pitch for Single-A Jupiter when the Marlins begin their road trip on Aug. 22. "Im very pleased with how far hes come in the last few days," Redmond said. Also, INF Derek Dietrich (right wrist) is expected to begin a rehab assignment with Single-A Jupiter on Saturday. UP NEXT Diamondbacks: RHP Trevor Cahill (2-8, 4.86) has won one of his nine starts this season -- but that win was in his last outing, a 14-4 victory over Colorado on Aug. 9. Cahill is 1-1 in four appearances against the Marlins. Marlins: LHP Brad Hand (2-4, 4.65) makes his 11th start of the season. Hes 0-1 with a 2.38 ERA in two career starts against the Diamondbacks DIAMONDBACK TRIPLES Arizona came into the night tied with the Los Angeles Dodgers for the major-league lead with 33 triples, and hit two more on Thursday. PENNY WISE Penny gave up two leadoff walks, one of the four-pitch variety to Ender Inciarte to open the game, the other to Trumbo in the sixth. Both runners eventually scored. But he also hit his first double since Sept. 19, 2007 to help get the Marlins offence going.
